1 lb. chicken breast, boneless, skinless

2 cloves (2 tsp.) garlic, minced

2 onions (2 cups), chopped

2 bay leaves

1 tsp. dried oregano

fat free olive oil spray

12 corn tortillas

This recipe is higher in sodium. If you're on a restricted sodium diet you might want to consider another option.

1. Put the chicken, garlic, 1/2 the onion and bay leaves in a pot. Add water until chicken is covered, then bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 35 minutes, or until inside chicken is no longer pink.

2. Once chicken is cooked, allow it to cool in the broth. Shred the meat along the fibers into bite sized pieces. Discard the boiled chicken and onion water.

3. Heat a frying pan, coat with olive oil spray and saute the remaining cup of onions until translucent. Mix the shredded chicken and saute'd onions together.

4. To prepare the tortillas, heat up a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook each side for 15-30 seconds, then flip over and do the same. It's ready when it starts to bubble and turn slightly brown.

5. Build each enchilada by putting the corn tortilla first, then about 1/4 cup chicken & onion mix, 2 tsp. tomatilla sauce, cilantro, a sprinkle of feta cheese, heaping tablespoon of sour cream and romaine lettuce on top. Roll into an enchilada and enjoy.
